The United States proposed to put nuclear weapons to Taiwan

The United States proposed to put nuclear weapons to Taiwan

The American media published material that is dedicated to "Beijing’s tough policy towards Taiwan and Hong Kong." This is an article published in The National Interest by columnist Michael Rubin. Rubin writes that Chinese President Xi Jinping "has entered the warpath."


According to the American author, the Chinese authorities "canceled the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration, which guaranteed Hong Kong's special status."

From the material:

Xi Jinping also provoked a major crisis in relations with India after the Sino-Indian war of 1962. He imprisons representatives of the Uyghur minority. He is building bulk islands in the South China Sea and involves the seizure of water and new land closer to the Philippines in order to steal marine resources.

The author further writes that China "may attack Taiwan." As "confirmation" of his words, Rubin cites a statement by the head of the PLA Joint Staff Division Li Tsuocheng, who stated his readiness to "use all forces to stabilize and control the situation in the Taiwan Strait." At the same time, Mr. Rubin is modestly silent about that, after which the PLA Joint Staff touched on this issue. It all started with the fact that American reconnaissance aircraft not only appeared over the Taiwan Strait, but also carried out refueling there in the air, without leaving this airspace for several hours.

The ruby ​​on the NI pages offers a "solution to the problem." According to him, Taiwan needs nuclear weapons. He states that "perhaps the time has come for the United States to remind Beijing of its dangerous actions, allowing Taiwan to become a nuclear power."

American author:

If intermediate-range nuclear weapons were delivered to Taiwan, it would acquire a sufficient deterrent to maintain stability, if not peace, in the Taiwan Strait, and would relieve the United States of the need to deploy several groups of its carriers.

In fact, this is a provocative proposal, which is aimed at violating the current international agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.

            Yes, the states wanted to spit on Taiwan, as well as on all others (including allies), the Western system, led by the USA, went wrong, cracking at the seams (and by itself, the USSR has long been gone, there is no one to resist). The states are ready to drown the whole world in another world war, even nuclear, in order to prolong their existence. Moreover, this has already happened, and more than once.

        But it’s nothing that some American organisms propose to destroy one of the last restraining world treaties on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, after which it will be possible to stock up shrouds already ?!

          Well, and who is stopping the Russian Federation from preempting the “empirialists" by suspending its participation in the Wassenar Agreement, the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), let the Anglo-Saxons and Israeli Jews then wonder where the Hussites, Hezbollahs, etc. come from. weapons and dual-use goods and technologies, as well as the latest missile technologies ....
          It’s time for Russia to end being afraid of the role of the “bad guy” ... that they call us anyway, you’ll look and laugh at us more and the economic sanctions will be removed, who want to have an embittered country with nuclear weapons and who believes that she’s a “bad guy” .. ..and the neighbors next to us are almost all the same .... like us .... they need it, the “empirialists"?
          As the saying goes: "Do not wake a dare while it is quiet" ....

        Pakistan, Iran, SAR, DPRK, DPRK, PRC are all one “gang”, when they cannot think of something bad in the technical sense (in the field of military technology), they turn their eyes to the “mysterious” northern country and get almost always (if there is no heart-rending cry of Israeli Jews) all that they need ...

        Have you compared Taiwan to hezbollah? Well, hezbollah is fighting for Assad in Syria, you would put it more carefully on a par with the Taliban.

    Consciousness paralysis among American elites has become the norm; are Americans really seeing bad things? And all these accidents and statements, only at the first sight of chance!
    In the United States, the alleged creator of the Covid-19 virus, who sold it to China, was arrested. In particular, the WCVB channel broadcast an official statement by the US Department of Justice.
    We are talking about Dr. Charles Liber, Head of the Department of Chemistry and Biology, Harvard University (USA). This American scientist had a contract with Wuhan University to study Covid-19. He is arrested in his office at Harvard (USA).
    The investigation began in the case of the emergence and spread of a new coronavirus

    Some meritorious "especially gifted" people still believe that in the event of a "mess" they will sit on their own continent and will not touch them. Stupidity, I must say, is fantastic. It’s just that ALL who have the opportunity will enter the North American nursery with all their might.

    Now he will make full self-recognition that he has sold the virus to China, Russia, North Korea and Cuba.
    In addition, Trump announced the antifa "terrorist organization." The next step will repent of US participation in the anti-Hitler coalition and announce Hitler a martyr in the fight against communism (he deserved it).

    Mr. Rubin is modestly silent ...
    This arrogant audience, who considers the United States to be a "bulwark of the world", in the literal sense of the word, when it starts to hawk someone, to learn how to live properly and what to do, is silent about what Americans are doing by default.
    Had intermediate-range nuclear weapons been delivered to Taiwan, it would have acquired a sufficient deterrent
    Full paragraph. You can’t understand any more if they are born that way, the American "baggage" of knowledge makes them like that.

    The Taiwan crisis will be a pleasure to look at the reaction of the Chinese; with the blockade of the island, and landing operations.

    You might think that in China there are no more nations in jail besides the Uighurs.
    Han is the indigenous majority of China, in prisons in the largest number. The Triads - Chinese organized crime - are Han.
    And no one sticks with them. Drill a hole in the crown.
    And not even for terrorist activities. For the organization of clandestine casinos (if only we did!), For the maintenance of brothels, for occupying the highest level in the hierarchs of the criminal community. For drugs.
    The Japanese were the first to build bulk islands.
    So no complaints to the Chinese.
    Well, at the expense of assumptions, it’s completely liquid here.
    Does anyone and what suggests?
    In general, these are not serious accusations against Comrade X.
